Any reason for the number being 250? – David Starkey Aug 23 '13 at 20:11
@DavidStarkey: 42 is already occupied. – Ladybug Killer Aug 26 '13 at 10:01
Note: This doesn't sort them by views... – hayd Sep 25 '13 at 2:16
I would like to be able to access a list of all my own questions across the entire SE network where I can sort my views/popularity if this exists... – zigojacko Jun 25 at 7:32

The Stack Exchange Data Explorer can be used to find the most viewed questions using this data query.

If you wish you can make a fork of the query to customise the results displayed to include more or less details regarding each question. (e.g. Comments, Answers, Favourites, Votes)

Change the last line:




to sort by answers, or

ORDER BY FavoriteCount DESC

to sort by favorites, or


to sort by votes/score.
